Our Company

Kate Gomoll founded GRD in 1993 when she grew tired of days packed with endless meetings and evenings spent trying to do the real work. She believed she could make a difference by helping companies focus on the people who use their products.

Kate began by working from her home in San Francisco. From the beginning, she established a core set of values that still permeate throughout GRD:

• Give customers products that truly suit their needs.

• Design products that improve people’s lives.

• Have fun doing it.

Today, GRD exists to make things better. We have no desire to become a big company, because we don’t want to lose sight of the joys found in daily individual interactions. Individual attention — to our people, to our customers, and to our customer’s customers — sets us apart.
